Keano: I Thought I Was Strange

Roy Keane was famed for his rants whilst captain of Manchester United, from his criticisms of ‘prawn sandwich munchers’ at Old Trafford, to his bust up with Mick McCarthy at the World Cup, as well as the numerous occasions where he questioned the mentality of some of our players. “The players gave it their all [...]

The Charlatans, fronted by Salford lad Tim Burgess, performed at V Festival at the weekend, receiving rave reviews. Their most recent album was given away free online for fans, ranking 2nd in the indie chart.

Whose Side Are You On, Roy?

It’s quite an incredible position to be in. English and European Champions, yet already being written off for the following season. What has happened? The fact we’ve ‘needed’ a new striker for the past two years, whilst we’ve been collecting the trophies, has been forgotten. Now, if we don’t sign a striker we’re screwed, apparently. [...]

Fail To Prepare…Prepare To Fail

Whilst some see Roy Keane as a violent, uncontrolled scumbag, he will forever remain as an inspirational, professional, dedicated winner to us. Keane always had the highest expectations since starting to play the game as a youngster. When he broke in to the Nottingham Forest side, before joining United, he was left amazed by the [...]

What Happened To The Keane Of Old?

The 4-1 defeat to Middlesbrough was arguably one of the most embarrassing moments United have endured over the last ten years or so. We got absolutely battered that day at the Riverside and certainly didn’t deserve the consolation goal Cristiano Ronaldo scored at the death. The following day, there was talk in the tabloids of [...]

Robson, Cantona or Keane – Who Was Fergie’s Greatest?

In the 21+ years that Sir Alex Ferguson has been in charge of United, we’ve been blessed with some highly talented players. To pick a strongest United XI, even in just the Fergie era, is something that can never be agreed upon. Beckham instead of Ronaldo? Pick two from Hughes, Nistelrooy, Cantona, Cole, Yorke and [...]

Tired of the Lies: Keane vs Haaland

Cristiano Ronaldo spoke out at the weekend about the poor treatment he gets from the referees in this country, claiming he will end up like Arsenal’s Eduardo, who suffered a broken leg, if the referees don’t offer him better protection. United are the most fouled team in the league this season, despite the inaccuracies Arsene [...]

Another Red To Sunderland – Does Keano Have What It Takes?

Phil Bardsley has joined the long list of ex-Reds at Roy Keane’s Sunderland today, for a fee which could be worth £2 million. I know I’m not alone in feeling regretful over saying farewell to the Salford lad, who a couple of years ago looked to be the man to replace Gary Neville, in playing [...]

Essien: Roy Keane Is My Hero

“It is tedious to lose one of the best players in Europe but he has not left yet,” said Jean-Michel Aulus, the Lyon president. “We can still find a compromise so that he only leaves next year. Chelsea will have to show themselves to be very persuasive for us to let him leave. Manchester United [...]

Manchester United 4 Manchester United Graveyard 0

It makes sense that young and inexperienced managers would bring in players who he was familiar with. That is why Roy Keane has invested heavily in Irish players and United/former United playes. Out of the sixteen man squad that faced United today, five of them used to play for United, and that’s with former red, [...]

Keane: Neville Remembers The Years We Won, I Remember The Years We Lost

Manchester United play Sunderland today, travelling up to the North East to play Roy Keane’s team for the second time since he took over as boss. The first game ended 1-0 at Old Trafford, after Louis Saha came off the bench to score our winning goal. Sunderland fought well, playing an extremely defensive game, and [...]

Anderson – A Little Bit of Scholes and Keane?

When it was announced that United had signed teenager Anderson for a fee that could rise to £19 million, the country thought Fergie was barking. It was questioned how any player so young could be worth such a fee, particularly one that had never played in the Premiership before. The transition from one league to [...]

After Cantona and Keane, Captain Rooney is Obvious

It’s been a while since I’ve had a “favourite player”. By favourite, I mean the player who you defend until you’re blue in the face (regardless of their wrong doings), the player you could watch for hours on end, the player you admire and brag about in equal amounts. It seems a pretty childish thing [...]

England Embarrassment: Thank God For Manchester United

When Roy Keane returned the “shamed man” from the World Cup finals 2002, he knew he was going to be in for a tough time from the country and the media. What he deemed unacceptable behaviour from the FAI, embarrassing treatment, lead him to his decision to fly back to Manchester from Japan. When reflecting [...]

Solskjaer and Roy Keane At Old Trafford

I know it’s delayed, but I thought the videos taken from the Sunderland game might be of interest. It was a great day seeing Keane return, and Solskjaer getting a chance to say goodbye. Legends. Keano Walks Out On To The Pitch “There’s only one Keano” Solskjaer Waving Goodbye “You are my Solskjaer”
